X Carve cutting mid air

Has anyone had an issue with their XCarve cutting mid air after you’ve established your XYZ? How did you fix the issue?

Hello Elizabeth and welcome to the Inventables Community Forum,
How are you setting your Z height?
Your material may not be the same thickness throughout the entire piece and that would cause the router to cut while the bit is not touching the material.

Material is planed to desired thickness and I’m using the Inventables Z-Probe. I’ve also tried to manually set it and I’m still having the same problem. Lastly, to make sure I wasn’t going crazy so I set up just a hair below the material surface and STILL the same issue. The strange thing is I had just carved three “test” carves and it was just fine.
